Internal struggle for power will tear jubilee apart after launch, says EX councilor

Nairobi - Internal jostling for power and positions is the greatest undoing of the jubilee party and likely to tear apart the party.
According to a former councilor James Wachira, the new jubilee party principles have a hard task ahead in trying to control the overgrowing political egos of individuals within the party.
He said that the party will be disjointed few months from its launch because of the selfish and personal interests among its members.
Wachira argued that the party will hardly stand the test to unity and tie because the factor of tribe will creep in to haunt the party.
Speaking Sunday in Bahati, Wachira said that some tribes and parties which dissolved to join jubilee will feel disadvantaged and that will be the beginning of troubles within the new party.
“This hype we are witnessing now about the launch of jubilee is likely to be no more few months after its launch because trouble is brewing in the new party and people are silently fighting over positions and that is a serious threat to the party’s unity,” said Wachira.
“We have individuals who auctioned their parties and tribes to the jubilee party and they want to be rewarded and if that fail to happen then they will begin to cause trouble,” he added.
“The unity will be short lived and after the nominations we will see the real jubilee and it will have to prove that it can withstand the storm that will come with the nomination process,” he said.
The jubilee party will officially be launched on the 10th of this month in a ceremony that is expected to attract hundreds of thousands including foreign dignitaries.
